Hello all.

I have a problem with an Oracle and RAC with two nodes at backup time.
Sometimes if backup (Omniback/Dataprotector 5.1) start RMAN i got following message.
starting full resync of recovery catalog
full resync complete

allocated channel: dev_0
channel dev_0: sid=31 devtype=SBT_TAPE
channel dev_0: sid=31 devtype=SBT_TAPE
channel dev_0: MMS Version

RMAN-03009: failure of allocate command on dev_1 channel at 02/10/2005 06:00:17
ORA-03113: end-of-file on communication channel

The tapes and the OCFS are SAN devices joint with Fib.Cha. to the Server. The Tape devices are Ultrium 1 mounted in an Storagetek Library.
I assume that the EOF is timeout or havy load respones of SAN.
Does anyone who know whats happend ?

if this is only intermittent,
please check
( i assume you connect to rac nodes individually during the backup

1. QLNET.EXPIRE_TIME is set in the sqlnet.ora file on both target and catalog servers. try increasing it.
2. consider increasing tcp_ip_abort_interval
3. Is there a firewall?
4. Are there any reports in alert_sid.log?
